A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.

The life of the Chevrolet Fleetmaster was, wellfleeting.

Chrevrolet only offered the Fleetmaster from 1946-48 as a bridge between Chevy’s Special Deluxe and Deluxe models. Not much changed between the three different year models either. Only the grille serves as a dead giveaway on the model year, with the 1948 Fleetmaster being the only one with a vertical center bar within its grille.

This ’48 Fleetmaster convertible we spotted recently in Tallmadge, OH is a bit of an anomoly as it appears to sport an earlier model grille.
